    I rest my case http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/26147/

    And this one http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/26089/. I suppose it is content on the page but totally worthless.

    We don't have to, we can delete them, and in general where we spot them we are.

    I have probably been overly harsh on Facebook, we are getting a great deal of good input from people who would never have registered otherwise. And one or two who like this treat it as their wall to post on as they probably don't see the difference.

    Hi Shlerpy - long time!

    Yep, it was a broad daylight visit to the Newton - the pub is boarded up now though after the landlord's son was murdered on the premisis on New Years Eve. Quality place!

    Jar of lemons float across the bar!!! I'm more surprised that you can buy jars of lemons than I am of this haunting... Hands up who has a jar of lemons in the larder! Nobody? thought not!

    Maybe they are pickled lemons... Never seen them either, probably don't exist - I'll look them up.

    Of course there are Pickled Lemons, some people will eat anything!
